Bacolod water district urged to get P2-B loan | Sun.Star

MBCCI chief executive officer Frank Carbon said the water district should prepare its distribution systems as the water situation problem in the city will not be solved by the bulk water supply project alone.

"What will you do to the sufficient supply of water if you do not have efficient distribution systems," Carbon pointed out, adding that necessary expansions and repairs should be done quickly thus, there is a need for bigger Capex fund.
The business group insisted that instead of obtaining a P200-million loan for one year, Baciwa should consider a bigger amount for long-term development like for five years, or even stretch it to 10 years depending on its cash flow.
"Baciwa should not be scared of incurring P2 billion for five years even with three to four percent interest, rather than move slowly with P200 million which will also extend the agony of the consumers," Carbon said.
Such amount of loan would also make them more attractive to financial institutions as P200 million now seems to be merely "coins" for creditor banks, he added.
...
Carbon said this is something to worry about since up to now, the firm still has no financial disclosures with any bank that will finance the project.


Biz group worried over water situation | Sun.Star

MBCCI chief executive officer Frank Carbon said that for the third time, they are meeting Wednesday the management of the Bacolod City Water District (Baciwa) to discuss pressing concerns on the water supply including the status of the utility's present operations.

Carbon said that through the meeting, which will be held at the Bacolod Pavillon Hotel, they want the water district to provide them the clear and concrete status of the bulk water supply project.
"We would also like to be updated and clarified on the status of the augmentation wells which Baciwa plans to put up prior to the bulk water project," he said, adding that the water district has remained "mum" on these issues.
MBCCI cited various "mega projects" in Bacolod like those of Ayala Land Inc., Megaworld Corp., Robinsons Land Corp., and Double Dragon Properties Corp., which will surely result to bigger water consumption requirement.
It is worrisome for the business group that the city's water situation might not cope with the increasing water demand of the industry.
For the local business to continue growing, Carbon said that stable water supply is important like electricity.
Existing businesses may have the tendency to stop their operations in the city if water service is poor. This will also discourage potential investors from coming to Bacolod, Carbon added.
"If we cannot get enlightenment from this another meeting with Baciwa, we are looking at bringing our concerns directly to the Local Water Utilities Administration and even to President Rodrigo Duterte," he further said.

'Put all resources together,' biz sector urges gov't agencies | Sun.Star

www.sunstar.com.ph [cached]

MBCCI Chief Executive Officer Frank Carbon, also the regional governor of the Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PCCI) in Western Visayas and Negros Island Region, said that each agency is currently doing its own thing.

Carbon pointed out that agencies like the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) and its attached agency Small Business Corp., Department of Science and Technology (DOST), and Department of Agriculture (DA) should harmonize their initiatives.
"Their programs should complement and supplement each other so that the help to local small businesses could really be felt," he stressed.
...
Carbon said part of the MBCCI's programs in the coming months is to tap all these agencies then discuss and appeal with them to put their resources on the table.
The business group will ask them to talk among themselves on how to materialize these resources, Carbon said.
"We will initiate the gathering of these agencies together so that they can rationalize their efforts and initiatives for the desired development of small businesses which are the backbone of the economy," he added.
